3DR, I don 't get it

Recently some retailers had a greater than 50% off sale on the 3DR Solo. This comes at the 1 year mark from it's launch. That in itself is not that big of a deal (pun intended), as many companies reduce the price of a product after a period of time. Most of them announce a new / upgrade of the current product line with the new product being at or above the selling price of the replaced product. This easily justifies the big discount on the older product.

 The problem with the 3DR sale is, there is no newer product!  DJI typically does a big price reduction when they release a new drone in the Phantom series, which they did this time also. So why the "fire sale" at 3DR?  Their main competition is DJI and Yuneec, both of their offerings are about the same price with the 3DR sale at 40% of the competition.  Why would you need to go that low?

I just can't figure this out.

NO! Before You Fly, A Quiet Rant

It should be "Know"  but there is "NO" useful information in this app unless you want to plot the Longitude and Latitude of your nearby aircraft facilities on a map.

The name is right "NO before you fly" as they notify you that you can't fly and don't really provide any useful information to help you abide by the rules.

Did the "beta" testers think this was OK?

This app had great potential but then lacked the most important ingredient "usefulness"

Brand new iPhone 6s Plus 128gb run over 17 times by cars and trucks

I got a new iPhone 6s Plus 128 for Christmas and 20 days later I dropped it in the street as I was getting in my car. I did not have a case on it.

In a span of 8 minutes 20 seconds, my brand new, 20 day old, iPhone 6s Plus was run over by
17 cars and trucks.  Luckily, 34 missed it.

Once I realized I had lost it, I enabled the "lost mode" and 3 minutes later I got a call from the guy in the video saying he had it.

The case was really beaten up, with pock marks from rocks in the tires.  The front facing camera was broken and the light no longer worked.

This is a condensed version of those events.

The Bionic Bird - first flight

The Bionic Bird my latest drone. 
It really works and looks cool flying. 
This is not a review just my first flight with this new bird.
I did not read the manual (which I should have)  so that I could control it better
